Homework for Episode 134

Hi there! The homework this week is thus: what are your memories of the 1990 Turtles movie? Did you like it at the time? Do you still like it? Did you see it with family or friends, at the cinema or on VHS or DVD?Do your opinions now differ than at the time? You know the drill guys, we'd love to know your thoughts!

  1. My earliest memory of the first Turtles movie- we were so eager to see it, and my sister Helen had a friend in school who had a bootleg bus of it from his holiday abroad, and we watched it to death.
    then we went to the opening night at Odeon York, and I came out of that movie not thrilled but furious! The BBFC had slaughtered it. Everything Money did with his chucks was excised. Including the pivotal moment where they catch on the fire escape, so instead of that Splinter speech about how death comes for us all, we get Shredder running forward toward Splinter, then falling backward off the building for no reason. And the final nail in the coffin? The theme song, Turtle Power, which had been played quite unedited on the tv and radio, had been dubbed to say Teenage Mutant HERO Turtles!!! I still get steamed thinking about it. Thank goodness we can now watch it on DVD in its full uncut glory. It still rocks.
